    Hi all,

    Just a thought stemming from a post in the "Oprah Sued" thread...
    Would anyone be interested in starting up a 'MacRumors Comedian of the Week' Contest? Here's what I said:
    Does anyone else think this would work/be a good idea?

    *prepares for insults and ridicules*

    Isn't most of the humour around here unintended?


    But sure, it sounds like a fun idea. ^^

    I wouldn't say that. I think people know when they are being funny.
    Unless they are idiotic and we laugh at them because it's a stupid kind of funny.

    Err, no. Sorry. And as the only one supporting the contest so far, I vote against you, and I have majority.

    Terribly sorry Jake.

    Well as the only one who supports it I should have a vote to, meaning that you also will not win.

    Just do it. You never know if threads are going to work until to you try. I think it could be fun.

    The question is logistics. Obviously there would be a time frame associated with when people could make nominations, but how long weekly, every other week, etc.. And how would it be judged? Do people vote or is there a specific judge. Also, what posts are eligible and who is the winner, the person who made the original funny comment or the person who nominated them?

    Think it through, come up with a workable system and go for it. :)

    Sounds like a good idea. Although if it doesn't work out, it will be fun to look at others funny postings. Ill try to find some and post them. Although the part about the "Comedian of the week" chooses the next one, isn't that fair. Maybe have a poll on the top and anyone can vote.
    Although I doubt the administrators or whatever will want to do it.

    It's in the photography sub-forum. There are quite a few contests actually with different associated rules and time frames. You can find some great work in them as well. We have many talented members here.

    Edit: Just realized you are probably being sarcastic. Sorry for my rush to be helpful. :eek:
